Why are you using a SignaLink?   All you need it is a standard USB cable (what's typically called a printer cable) to have both audio and CAT control.

What am I missing?
The SignaLink-USB doesn't provide any facilities for CAT control of the rig (of any make/model); it's solely an audio interface.  You'll need to provide some other means for CAT controling the rig.

Even without CAT control of your FT-891 you'll be able to make QSOs if you configure WSJT-X so that the radio is set to 'None' and you also set the WSJT-X Tx frequency cursor on the waterfall (or use the Tx frequency box) to somewhere between 1500 and 2000Hz.
